It’s a somber day in Charlotte.
But they at least have a backup quarterback again, as Derek Anderson just tweeted that he was staying in Charlotte.
Anderson has been a perfect backup for the Panthers, as he hasn’t had to play much. In fact, they were undefeated when he took the field last year in mop-up duty.
As long as he doesn’t have to do much more than that, they should be fine, as the release of Steve Smith has put a lot more pressure on Cam Newton to make more plays.
Keeping a man with an even keel such as Anderson was vital to the process.
